The SPCA of Wake County offers a summer reading program for children in grades K through 5. Children are invited to our Adoption Center to read their favorite stories to shelter cats, so that they can develop confidence in their reading abilities in a fun and pressure-free environment. They will also be able to take a tour of the Adoption Center, meet our animals, and learn about responsible pet ownership.

Sessions are one hour long and take place every other Tuesday.
